Happy New Year everyone! May 2011 bring you much joy, peace and prosperity!

Mac class news for the month:

It’s after the holidays, so we’re back to a full schedule… First, the Saturday classes:

 For starters, Saturday, January 15th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be covering Apple’s iWork suite: Pages, Numbers and Keynote. This trio of programs is the competition for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The focus will be on Pages, since word processing is the most common task for the majority of users, but I will give a good overview of the other two programs as well. This class carries a fee of $20.

 Then, on Saturday, January 29th, from 10 a.m. to noon,

back by popular demand, I will once again be covering iPhoto. Come learn all the ins and outs of how to manage your digital photo library… As a bonus, I’ll cover the new features in the latest version of the program: iPhoto ’11! This class also carries a fee of $20.

***The above classes are always held in the small meeting room at Ridgway Town Hall, and are open to drop-ins, with no sign-up necessary***


 This month, the regular FREE “Overview of Mac OS X” class will again take place on the last Wednesday of the month, Wednesday, January 26th from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library. There are only eight seats available, and the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you’d like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).

There are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there’s room)!
